Journal Babies is written for every woman who is planning on becoming pregnant or who is already pregnant. Every couple enrolled in the national, NIH-funded LIFE Study** received a copy of Journal Babies.  This research project studied couples who were trying to conceive a child, but not being treated for infertility. This study examined the relationship between fertility and exposure to environmental chemicals and lifestyle.

Journal Babies can answer questions such as:
  • Can a home ovulation predictor test help me?
  • How does a home pregnancy test work?
  • How much weight should I gain during my pregnancy?
  • Can I drink beverages with caffeine? What about diet soda?
  • What should I eat to have a healthy baby?
  • What kinds of things can harm my developing baby?
  • How do twins develop?

The first half of Journal Babies can maximize chances of conception by helping women pinpoint the fertile days in their menstrual cycle and answers questions about fertility, conception, assisted conception, pregnancy, and childbirth. 

After conception, Journal Babies can be used to record and organize all the exciting and challenging details surrounding the pregnancy...from conception to delivery...on the month-by-month calendar pages. Keep track of doctor's appointments, important questions to ask, special tests, and note important milestones. After delivery, Journal Babies becomes a keepsake to look back and remember thoughts, milestones and pertinent health information related to the pregnancy.

Softcover, 112 pages.
